Entrepreneur takes legal action against TfL

An entrepeneur is taking legal action against Transport for London after he claims he was unfairly blocked from bidding for a contract to open up disused tube stations to the public. 

Ajit Chambers says he put around half a million pounds into the project, only for TfL to steal his intellectual property for their own potentially lucrative plan.

The Mayor of London is now investigating the case.

London Live asked TfL for a response, and they sent the following statement: 

"We've had a fantastic response from a variety of companies following our search for a partner to transform Down Street disused station. We have evaluated the submissions we received, and have shortlisted a company as our potential partner.

"Although Mr Chambers may be disappointed with our decision, we have held an open and fair procurement process. 

"We will now enter into negotiations with our preferred bidder and hope to make an announcement shortly about the new commercial future of Down Street disused station."
